EVERETT, Mass., Jan. 15 (UPI) -- School officials in Massachusetts said a principal has been suspended for two days for creating a video parody of "The Terminator" and showing it to students.

Everett Schools Superintendent Frederick Foresteire said the School Committee met with Everett High School Principal Erick Naumann and his lawyers for more than an hour Monday before hearing words of support from teachers, staff members and students, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday.

Foresteire said after the meeting Naumann will not be fired.

"I have known Mr. Naumann all of his life, including the 15 years he's been employed here," Foresteire said. "He's a strong leader, he made the wrong decision on the video ... but I certainly don't think he should be terminated."

The video depicts Naumann walking the halls of the school dressed as Arnold Schwarzenegger from the "Terminator" series of films. A teacher asks him where the students are, and he responds that they have been "Naumannated."

The video was shown during the school's morning announcements.
